PCC hosts Oregon Transfer Days around Portland

Story by

To assist students transferring to a four-year college or university, Portland Community College is hosting Oregon Transfer Days at all of its campuses during a week in February.

The event is set for 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day, on Monday, Feb. 18 (Upper Mall, College Center Building, Sylvania Campus, 12000 SW 49th Ave.), Tuesday, Feb. 19 (Mall, Building 3, Rock Creek Campus, 17705 NW Springville Road), Wednesday, Feb. 20 (Mt. Tabor Hall, Southeast Center, 2305 SE 82nd Ave.) and Thursday, Feb. 21 (Cafeteria, Student Center, Cascade Campus, 705 N. Killingsworth St.). The transfer days are open to any community college student, whether they are planning to transfer, or just starting to consider their four-year degree opportunities.

Oregon Transfer Days are a partnership involving four-year universities and all of the state’s 17 community colleges. First launched by a coalition of admissions professionals in 2007, the annual Oregon Transfer Days outreach tour brings admissions and recruitment professionals from the state’s seven public universities, private and out-of-state colleges to the community colleges. The event, sponsored by the Oregon Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, helps students understand and prepare for the next step in their college careers.

The number of community college students transferring to Oregon’s public universities increased by 70 percent in the last ten years. The increase can be attributed to numerous factors and new partnerships, including co-enrollment and articulation agreements between community colleges and universities. PCC has dual enrollment agreements with Portland State University, Oregon State University, Oregon Institute of Technology, Concordia University, Western Governors University, Marylhurst University and Linfield College.

I am planning on attending your community college after attending a nannying school for 7 months right after high school. I was planning on staying with you guys for 2 years and then transferring to a university in Idaho. 1)How many months does it take to complete 2 years of school credit? Last time I saw someone who worked there I got confused. 2)Would I be able to transfer credits I earned here to the Idaho university?
